Evidence can only be credible with high-quality data.
IPA has a team dedicated to ensuring that our country offices have the tools and training to adhere to our rigorous data quality standards.
Drawing on the wealth of local knowledge and surveying experience of IPA’s country offices and staff, we drive and promote innovations in research design, measurement tools, data collection, and quality control. For example, we leverage new technologies to improve measurements, examine the effects of surveyor characteristics on survey response, and test new ways to measure complex outcomes. We then share these findings publicly and use them to adjust our resources, training, and methods.
